Universal Design for Instruction

What is Universal Design?

“Universal Design is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.”

Simply put, the goal for universal design is to simplify life by making products, communications and the built environment as usable as possible, by as many people as possible, at little or no cost.
